Description

Every Thursday. Time: 12:15pm-1:00pm

Weekly Mindfulness Meditation Group Practice allow you  to practice meditation with others as well as the possibility of establishing and strengthening your own meditation practice. For those of you who have done the Insight Meditation, Absolute Beginners Meditation, or Mindfulness Meditation at the Buddhist Library, this class is an excellent way to continue and build on the skills you have learnt.

Each month we will invite a guest teacher to facilitate the meditation practice. If the teacher is not present, we will play guided meditation recording and sit together.

Come once; come weekly to this informal gathering of meditation.
